President Message

Term 2015-2017

Mr. Praveen Chandok

Dear Alumni Members,

It’s always a great pleasure to converse with you...

Thank you for choosing me and my team to serve for the Association once again earlier you gave me this honour to serve as Secretary for the term (2011 – 2013) me along with my team members had left no stone unturned to take it to zenith, during the said tenure Alumni corpus doubled, Alumni Sports Meet was initiated, Alumni office was converted into Archive Room. The other noticeable achievements were Career Counselling Sessions, Benevolent fund, organising biggest ever Summer Carnival- 2012, Premier Movie Show for Members, Teacher's Day Celebrations got much bigger. In addition to all this, several Medical Camps with the help of Alumni Doctors and various theatre artist invited to perform at school auditorium…

We are now no more a struggling organization... Today, our Association is more than 2800 members strong and growing...their contributions makes a difference everywhere. As alumni who truly love and faithfully support this Association of great institution, I know you share my pride in what we are doing and where we plan to go... Our present term is on a perfect course to realise our motto of bonding Josephites across the globe we had the opportunity to extend a warm welcome to the batch of 1971, 1986 and 1991who celebrated completing 25 years of passing out from St. Joseph's Academy! Alumni receptions such as these provide us with an opportunity to become reacquainted with the community from which we came. Their presence at Alma Mater reaffirms our ongoing membership in this community.

In recent years SJA has steadily been building its capacity to create a truly great school. In my view, greatness requires four things: wonderful students enjoying a tremendous student’s experience; very successful faculty; a supportive campus learning environment; and substantial financial resources... Students today are Alumni tomorrow.

I would like to reiterate the role Alumni play in the wider society. Most of us hold key positions of influence. I would appreciate to see that we use the influence to direct the development of our society positively. We should always endeavour to uphold good morals and act as an inspiration to the society and students. I want to thank all of you for the amazing support you have always extended to the Alma Mater.

My special thanks to entire Past and Present MC who left no stone unturned to see SJA AA reaches its Zenith... They were always there sparing their precious time from work and family...The passion and enthusiasm of being Josephite was the only ingredient.

My Deepest Regards and gratitude to our Principal, Patron of SJA Alumni Association Bro. Dennis Joseph for his wonderful support, assistance and guidance and all of us will seek more in the coming years. Thank you Brother for being there and continue to look forward to your whole hearted support.
